Did somebody not live their life the way you think they should? Keep cleaning those wheels. Keep going over this again and again until you start feeling some laughter about to seep through the saliva that is flying in all directions from your profanity laced ranting that is being heard by several neighbors.

I enjoy home shopping more than clothes and accessories now, which is really weird. Who would have thought that I will be super excited to buy a bed lamp over a pair of jeans 😀
I can keep the things just the way I like. I do not have to worry anymore about my room mate not doing the dishes or leaving that wet towel on couch.
My house is as neat…[Read more]

And the more we relax…[Read more]

I do feel more free now that I have admitted I am not in control of all the external things around me, including my alcohol intake. I am taking better care of myself, bodily, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I try not to obsess about myself all the time the way I once did; I don’t feel as useless. As a result, “problems” that once bothe…[Read more]

Yes of course, and I was beaten badly after that.
It happened in my 9th class. I have remembered that it was the last period before the lunch break. Because the teacher was on leave that day, I and my friends were enjoying and passing comment on one another.

Nor do they exclude each other. From what I understand from your question, the problem is finding a balance, or perhaps be more in…[Read more]

Don’t be so serious. Laugh a lot. It makes your brain light up. Make sure every day is filled with laughter. This usually happens when you’re surrounded by those you love, and who love you back.

Things I learnt from my life:
1. There are people behind you who expect something from you and believe that you can do it.
2. The society may flatter you when you are successful but will laugh behind your back when you are down.
3. Don’t let emotions overcome your goal. Trust me I had a very bad break-up a week before entering IIM A.
